Color Highlighter in Sublime Text

I had a hard time getting the Color Highlighter package to work with Sublime Text...

My mistake? Color Highlighter doesn't work in Sublime 3. It only works in Sublime 2.

Once you figure that out, install Sublime 2 then follow the Color Highlighter install instructions. It will work just fine.

Rubular: A Regular Expression Editor

I didn't have to fiddle with a regular expression in ages, so tonight I had a hard time figuring out how to extract precise parts of a string in Python.

Thanks to this online editor, I was able to work my way through it quite easily.

VBScript / VB Syntax Highlighting in Sublime Text

Did you ever feel like programming that quick Excel macro in Sublime Text, but you couldn't because it doesn't recognize VB syntax out of the box? (Not that I like that much to program Excel macros, but you gotta do what you gotta do!) Well, thanks to this plugin, you can now enjoy Sublime Text for any of your VB / VBA / VBScript endeavors.

GitHub | VBScript package for Sublime Text

Download it, extract it inside your Sublime Text plugin directory, remove -master from the extracted folder's name, fire up Sublime Text and you're up and running!

Just when I thought Sublime Text couldn't get any better!

Fix Sublime Text 2 Scroll Lag

Is Sublime Text your favorite text editor yet? Make sure you check it out right away, it's awesome:

Sublime Text: The text editor you'll fall in love with

Depending what OS you're using, your computer's performance and likely a few other factors, you might notice that there's a slight lag when scrolling using the mouse wheel in Sublime Text. Here's what you have to do in order to fix it.

1. Click Preferences, Settings - Default

2. Search for "scroll_speed" and set it to 0. (It's usually set to 1.5 by default. )
3. Save and close the settings file.

By disabling smooth scrolling, we get rid of the slight mouse wheel scrolling lag we experienced until now.

FreeOrion Is Now On GitHub

I didn't look at the FreeOrion project for quite a while. I just found out they migrated to GitHub a short time ago. That's great news, as GitHub is the place for open source collaborative development right now.

It will hopefully boost the motivation of contributors and bring in new ones too. I'm definitely going to look into the code once more when time permits and see if I can submit a few simple mods that would move things forward a little.
